Respected user, hi Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.com I have evaluated your query thoroughly. As per the information you have provided, you aunt is suffering from heart failure at present. Heart failure occurs when the heart muscle is weakened and cannot pump enough blood to meet the body s needs for blood and oxygen. The weakened heart pump enough blood which results in fatigue and shortness of breath which limits everyday activities like walking or climbing stairs. Heart failure is more likely to happen as we age, but anyone can develop heart failure. Most common causes for heart failure are coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, and previous heart attack. Damage to heart can’t be reversed but the symptoms can be improved with proper management plan including lifestyle modifications, medications and devices and surgical procedures.
